Following a data-driven rebrand from the SoftSols Group to SSG Insight and the announcement of two new C-Suite appointments, the smart workplace solutions provider has gone from strength to strength throughout 2018.
Its expanded product offering, alongside its market-leading Agility 9 CMMS solutions, will be showcased at this year’s Maintec exhibition (NEC 6-7th November).
The SaaS provider’s two major launches include the AgilityBI tool, which facilitates the ability for businesses of all sizes to analyse trends over time, tracking long-term KPIs to help achieve optimum performance and profitability across all areas of operation. The data suite includes the ability to build, configure and share customisable reports relating to the business’ assets, resources, people and processes, in addition to providing a menu of instant access analytics to support confident decision making. The sophisticated software can also connect top-tier trends with access to detailed source data for precise clarifications and ensure accuracy with steps taken to make business improvements. As a result of faster and smarter decision making, businesses can reduce downtime and increase reliability. The solution can also be used to extend the life of assets and achieve more predictability, improve efficiency of operations, lower cost, and achieve optimal output.
In response to IT technologies becoming more consumerised and customer demand for a familiar and flexible operating system to allow mobile working, SSG Insight announced a new extension of its mobile solutions offering to provide customers with access to its market-leading Agility 9 asset management system via Apple mobile devices. Creating a streamlined workflow, AgilityMobile solutions speed up response times and minimises administration. Easy-to-navigate features include the ability to accept, suspend and complete work on the move, raise a new job and capture important information to help identify issues and complete work. Consistent, quick and easy system access, regardless of location, means customers see significant benefits including the reduction of completion times and the ability to improve quality by reducing duplication and errors through a consistent information flow.
As well as expanding on their product offering, SSG Insight has partnered with Sheffield Hallam University to publish an extensive new report amongst leading manufacturing executives. The report, Harnessing Technology and Insight is co-authored by Dr Hongwei Zhang and Professor Sameh Saad from Sheffield Hallam University and Jon Moody of SSG Insight. It discusses the optimism and concern around one of the most critical challenges facing modern Britain: the relentless rise of technology, particularly in the form of Industry 4.0.
The report details how manufacturers can:
– Understand the biggest challenges facing the industry
– Learn what international business leaders are doing to address Industry 4.0
– View exclusive survey data to help plan for the future
SSG Insight has earned an impressive reputation for delivering world-class data analysis, helping manufacturers compete globally by effectively managing their assets to drive better business performance. Jon Moody, Chief Product Officer, said: “Through our Agility 9, AgilityBI, Android and iOS products, we provide technology and expertise that can empower smart action, by providing the most user-friendly, insightful and future-proof solution for managing assets, processes and people.
“The UK and its manufacturing sector are going through a particularly disruptive period in history, and businesses are facing short-term uncertainties posed by political and macro-economic events. Which is why it’s a timely moment for SSG Insight to commission our research to understand the optimism and concern around Industry 4.0 amongst manufacturing professionals.”
